I often wonder what other people keep in their pantry.
We started buying canned food in bulk and storing it by the case a year or so ago. We originally wanted to have food on hand in case of an emergency. Here in Southern California we could have any number of natural disasters; we thought we should be prepared for anything.
What’s great is our stock has come in handy for non-emergencies since it’s like having “free ingredients” in the house for all kinds of recipes!
On tight budget weeks I try to find things in the pantry or freezer to make a whole meal without having to go to the store. Of course, we prefer fresh foods more than frozen, but when you need to save a few bucks today and you spent the money a few months ago, this is an ideal time to shop at home!
Tell me: What do you keep stocked in the pantry or freezer — and what your go to meal is with those items?
